Capricorn 6. A woman inventing magical perfumes. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Experimental
(Degree Angel: MITZRAEL (MITS-ra-EL) Freedom, Internal Reparation)
TITLE: INTUITIVELY BLENDING ENERGIES AND SENSING THE EFFECTS THEIR COMBINATIONS HAVE ON THE SOUL or THE DISTILLATION OR ESSENTIALIZATION OF WHOLE WORLDS OF VIBRATIONS or THE CREATION OF SUBTLE INTENSITY OF EFFECT
This degree has an instinct for how to blend energies in such a way as to produce specific effects. Its knowledge is highly non-objective and comes primarily from inspiration and an ability to sense what the result of these blends will be. When expressing the self, subtle emphasis is placed in just the right way to create a desired sensation. The feeling is reminiscent of Japanese aesthetics.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “An ancient gold scarab lying in the sand.” Here things are simplified to their essentials in such a way that they carry a Piscean quality of indefinable wonder. This degree expresses eternal truths in condensed form, and often in such a hidden way that even though the essence of magic comes through, it lingers there in a way so subtle and transparent that it can’t be clearly defined or directly seen. The scarab carries an aura about it that recalls the mystery and sublimity of antiquity – just as the perfumes of the Omega Symbol do.
Pleiadian Symbol: Logs of sacred trees being finished to become columns in a temple. Finding the right materials (ones imbued with aliveness) and refining them to create a vehicle through which the spiritual light can shine.
Azoth Symbol: Women of court walking softly so as not to disturb the lotus blossoms. Aligning one’s actions to harmonize with the highest and finest states of being. A delicate manner of moving through the world and respecting its beauties.
Seed degree: 10 Gemini.
Magic glasses which allow one read a secret text. (Omega Symbol). It takes these magic glasses to see the scarab in the sand – the scarab being, actually the condensation of an ancient text.
A young woman notices the handsome man has fangs. (Chandra Symbol). And now she must work with his dark, predatory side – so she’s going to need some magic perfumes.
Fulfillment degree: Pisces 23. In a museum, paintings are admiring people as they pass by. (Omega Symbol). To work with the combining and blending of energies leads to new realms, startling results, and new communications.
Someone lurking in a dark wood. They are waiting for a passerby. (Chandra Symbol). These perfumes and ancient magics need someone to grab.
The sadness of never being able to write down the formula for a perfume, for the ingredients came to her spontaneously, through inspiration, and some of them might be the weather on a certain day, or the smell of a private memory, or the shape of a cloud.
The perfumes she made were elusive, and drew those who smelled them into them, becoming enveloping landscapes which changed with every breath. Even their names changed as the purchaser watched the label on the bottle.
